Earlier this week, August Alsina asked his fans for their prayers and support for his "dis-ease," without revealing much more about what's going on in his life. In a recent clip shared via Instagram, the R&B singer had a sit down with Jada Pinkett Smith where he opened up about his battle with Liver disease. “I have a liver disease,” he tells Pinkett-Smith in the video. “My autoimmune system is fighting itself. The reality is that I’m sick all the time. “I don’t really like to talk about it because I’m not looking for anybody’s sympathy,” Alsina adds. “Don’t treat me like I’m a f*ckin’ cancer patient — because I’m not.”
Please excuse my defense mechanism in this clip.. I'm sicker than ever & having a hard time accepting what I feel & what the Doctors are saying is most true. After sitting down and talking with my fathers mother and sister.. They explained to me that sickness & illness runs in my family. My father & grandfather both died of severe illness. 😞😒 but they were FIGHTERS & that's all that matters. 💪🏽✨✨✨ Just ride with me is all I ask.
